I worked with Sally in a Cirencester department store before she and Peter were married. I met Peter on several occasions when he met Sally from work. They were a lovely couple.

I am just watching match of the day. I am a West Bromwich albion fan and for some unknown reason Peter Houseman came into my mind. He was a lovely man and a great footballer in his time at Chelsea. He lived in Northleach, Gloucestershire during his days playing for Oxford. I also came to live in Northleach when I was nine years old. I would love his family to now that I still remember him to this day and would love to send them my very best wishes and a Happy New Year for 2016. Linda Lee xx
I grew up in Oakley and lived down the road from Peter and his wife Sally. I knew them very well and used to babysit for their three sons. Remember answering the phone to numerous journalists and people like Dave Sexton. Peter was a lovely chap, very modest and quietly spoken who did a terrific amount for the local area. He is still remembered fondly in Oakley and the local playing field is named after him. It was a terrible shock hearing that Sally and Peter had been in killed.
I remember fondly Peter and Sally along with the boys Mathew Daniel and Nathan as I used to live next door to them in Oakley. They were such a lovely family. I remember at the back of the house their was a lean to glass house with a bench that would have all the Chelsea team strip layed out from being freshly washed I'm guessing by Sally. Such a tragedy to what we already know.
I still think often how the boys are doing and hoping things turned out ok.
I used to live in Oakley and also babysat for Peter and Sally Houseman' s boys. My parents bought his house after he transferred to Oxford Utd. 2 Severn Gardens. A very talented player who was very modest and unassuming but gave a lot to the local boys setting up the Peter Houseman football league. ( Both my sons years down the line played for Oakley FC).
Sally used to work at Basingstoke Development Group with my Mum when Basingstoke was a London overspill New Town, a lovely supportive Mum and wife.
A lovely family, I wish the sons Matt, Daniel and Nathan all the best I remember when each if you were born.
